    16 Year-Old Charged With Attempted Murder In Elgin Shooting Sunday Morning

    A 16 year-old juvenile was charged today with attempted murder in a shooting incident Sunday morning in Elgin. He will be tried as an adult.

    Kane County State’s Attorney Jamie Mosser charged the juvenile with the offenses of:

    ·   Attempted murder, Class X felony

    ·   Aggravated battery with a firearm, Class X felony

    ·   Aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, Class 4 felony

    Although the accused offender will be tried in adult court because of the serious nature of the charges, the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office has chosen to not reveal the alleged offender’s identity because the individual is a juvenile.

    Kane County prosecutors allege that the morning of Oct. 3, 2021, in the vicinity of East Chicago and North Geneva streets, Elgin, the alleged offender fired multiple shots from a handgun, striking the victim four times, causing life-threatening injuries.

    The victim, who also is a juvenile, remains hospitalized.

    The juvenile appeared today in Kane County bond court. Kane County Judge Julia Yetter set bail at $500,000, with 10 percent ($50,000) to apply for bond.

    Judge Yetter set the juvenile’s next court appearance for 9 a.m. Oct. 15, 2021, in Courtroom 305 at the Kane County Judicial Center.

    The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information should call the Elgin Police Department at (847) 289-2600.
